Winter’s Coming by mary elizabeth

winter's comingIt’s beginning to look a lot like winter.  First of all, we have quite a storm system blowing through Fort Bragg right now.  It’s very wet and although we have sunny skies in between storms, the down pours and winds themselves are quite impressive.  If you’re headed our way, be sure and check the roads for closures because there’s been some flooding.  I’ve been lucky both here at Living Light and at home as far as power outages – I’ve been all powered up so far.  Anyhow – it’s “between storms” right now and it’s a lovely day out.  Far out for now!

And secondly, looking forward to the beginning of winter means, of course, the holidays.  There’s soretro family xmas much to do every weekend this month!  This weekend’s holiday cheer is a benefit concert by Willits Brass (featuring my sweet boyfriend) at the Company Bar (featuring sweet Amanda) for Project Sanctuary.  All good fun for a good cause.  The weekends coming up will have lighted truck parades and lighted botanical gardens and more parties and gosh – what a whirlwind!  Sometimes…. I must admit…. I feel a bit overwhelmed by all of it and kind of wish I could just hide at home and read.  But, I always have a good time once I get myself to these things and I have such wonderful friends with whom to do them.  The holidays are winterall about connections – to your community, your family and your friends.  I’m feeling so good about the connections in my life right now I just know this winter will be beautiful.  As we near the solstice, let’s connect to all those things plus the planet.  As we move through these dark days, let’s light our worlds.
